Tiger Woods has entered into a legal brawl with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for using his sex scandal in their latest ad campaign.
PETA had plans for putting up billboards that made fun of Tiger Woods controversial sex addiction and encouraged people owning pets to control the pet population.
The billboard says, “Too much sex can be a bad thing for little tigers too. Help keep your cats (and dogs) out of trouble: Always spay or neuter!”
But the ad campaign has angered the golf champion, and his lawyers have filed a suit against PETA for mocking Tiger Woods.
The animal rights organization says that the advertisement is not intended to insult Tiger Woods and was meant to prevent millions of cats and dogs from being euthanized every year.
Virginia Fort, an activist for the group informs, “It’s a fun, tongue-in-cheek approach. We hope these billboard companies will understand.”
“The world has been transfixed on Tiger’s life after Thanksgiving. We’re putting the focus where it needs to be. We’re sure Tiger will appreciate our attempt — from a story that’s distracted the world and followed Tiger — to turn it into something positive for little tigers.”
But the advertisement campaign has been stalled for the time being. A spokeswoman from PETA said, “In light of conversations we have had with Mr. Woods’ attorneys, plans to run our billboard are on hold at this time.”
’Sexting’ makes fun of Tiger too
Rapper Ludacris’s new song’s intro also makes fun of Tiger Woods’ controversial sex life.
But Ludacris clarified, “If I’m making fun of Tiger Woods, I’m also making fun of myself.”
The rapper from Atlanta went on to narrate the tale of how his girlfriend came to know about his mistress through his cell phone and said that he would like to advise Tiger if the golfer felt offended by the song.
He said, “It’s very entertaining. And I do feel as though he may have handled it wrong. I would say, ‘Let’s go play some golf and talk about it.”
“’Let’s go to the sex-rehab place together and let’s discuss it. Let me know where your sex-rehab place is and I’ll let you know where mine is. We got some things to get off our chest,” rapper further said.
